We were having a February birthday party for the birthdays in my family which was my niece, son, and my mom. Of course my niece wanted a Barbie birthday, and my son wanted a cowboy birthday. This left me in a bit of a bind with what to do, so I did a Barbie, Cowboy and tried my hand at a hummingbird. The night before the party I started messing around with fondant trying to decide what and how I was going to make the cake.
I first made the flower which I was getting frustrated with because my fondant was a bit dry so it wasn’t turning out as I wanted. So I started messing around with the fondant when my 4 year old daughter walked by and said “cool hummingbird mom!” At this stage it was all white, so I went with it! All I had my my gel food coloring so I used that to paint it, it stayed a little wet but that was the least of my worries.
I finished the cake and lined the bottom with leaves and that was all the time that I had before the party. Three cakes in one morning what a lot of work but it was worth it when my mom got tears in her eyes! I had prepared her for having a Barbie girl birthday!
